Headword: *)ape/docen
Adler number: alpha,2981
Translated headword: it seemed good not, it was resolved not
Vetting Status: high
Meaning how did it not seem good.
Greek Original:
*)ape/docen: a)nti\ tou= pw=s ou)k e)/docen.
Same entry in Photius and elsewhere, though there without the intrusive pw=s before the ou)k; the gloss should read 'Meaning: it did not seem good'.
The headword must be quoted from somewhere: there are instances in Herodotus, Xenophon, Pausanias and Philostratus.
Impersonal a)pe/docen is the opposite of e)/docen as a decision-making formula: see LSJ s.v. a)podokei=.
Keywords: constitution; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; rhetoric
